Obituary for Eleanor Lancaster Smith

Eleanor Lancaster Smith, 82, returned home to our Lord and Savior after a long valiant fight against cancer on January 27, 2019 at 7:40pm at Kitty Askins.

Eleanor was born on April 07, 1936 to the late Silas and Mildred Lancaster of Wayne County, NC. From her birth until her final breath she covered everyone in love, prayer, and a comforting peace that only she could. Eleanor was devoted to her family. She enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. During her fight with cancer she did not complain one time or feel bad for herself, she knew God was in control over her life. Eleanor would say, “Don’t be sad for me, I know where I am going. I know I will no longer suffer and God is going to take care of me. Grieve a little bit and live a little bit. We will see each other again.”

She is survived by four sisters Inez Vail, Faye Massey, Louise Howell, Grace Howell, two daughters Debbie (Ron) Berry, Glenda (Wayne) Ketchuck, one son Mark (Susan) Davis, four Grandchildren Gary Bell Jr. (Nikki), Sherry (Larry) Lane, Jason (Darlene) Gibson, Jason (Crystal) Hamilton and several Great Grandchildren.

Visitation will be held at Seymour Funeral Home Friday, February 1, 2019 from 1:30pm - 2:30pm with a graveside service following at Wayne Memorial Park at 3pm.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be sent to Kitty Askins Hospice Center, 107 Handley Park Ct., Goldsboro, NC 27534.
